LOU REED - Warrior King

rate me

I wish I was the warrior king

in every language that I speak

Lord over all that I survey

and all that I see I keep

Power omnipresent

undiminished uncontrolled

With a message violent fury

at the center of my soul

I wish I was a warrior king

inscrutable benign

With a faceless charging power

always at my command

Footsteps so heavy that the world shakes

my rage instilling fear, ah, ha

Yet cautious firm but fair and good

the perfect Warrior King

I wish I installed angels

in every subject's house

Agents of my goodness

no one would be without

A steak on every plate

a car for every house

And if you ever crossed me

I'd have your eyes put out

You don't exist without me

without me you don't exist

And if logic won't convinced you

then there's always this

I'm bigger, smarter, stronger, tough

yet sensitive and kind

And though I could crush you like a bug

it will never cross my mind

It wouldn't cross my mind to break your neck

or rip out your vicious tongue

It wouldn't cross my mind to snap your leg like a twig

or squash you like some slug

You are a violent messenger

and I'm not above your taunts

And if you hit me you know I'll kill you

because I'm the Warrior King
